The life of the modern woman is getting busier more and more. Household, children, personal relationships, career, studies, and self-esteem management. There are so many roles to perform and they still have to come out as a heroine at the end of the day. Waking up beautiful and smiling, ready for the next day is an impossible mission.
The result of it all comes in the form of stress. And what are the most influencing factors? For 46% of the married American women with children, they are the husbands or partners. At least it is what indicates a recent survey conducted by the website “Today.com” with 7,000 women with this profile.
As justification, part of these women say they feel frustrated because they have many tasks to accomplish and little help from their partners, especially in household chores.
Another point of the survey is that half of these American women declared that they feel a lot of pressure with the obligations. Home, work, children, and, mainly, wives obligations. As they are unable to accomplish everything correctly as they would like to, they end up discouraged, stressed.
The survey also reveals that many of these women point out a lack of recognition from their partners. One in five said they have childish and immature attitudes because they often stand aside or are not priority in the routine.
The motto ‘staying together’ has to be real
It seems that the research made it very clear that partners should be more present and ‘work’ together more often with their wives. If you are a man reading this post, then enjoy some of the tips below to understand how to best contribute to your ‘modern wife’:
Sharing apron – washing the dishes, making the bed, taking turns to prepare the meals, playing and staying with the children while your wife deals with other things will help her to reduce (a little) stress.
Chat, talk and relax – pay attention, be interested by her subject, be engaged, fall in love by what she has to say. It is through talking that we can unburden and have the opportunity to keep a ‘connection’ with the other person.
Recognize, be thankful – it is impossible not to enjoy being appreciated by the efforts you do. Even if it is only a little, if the dedication of the woman with the house and children is full of love and attention, it deserves lots of recognition.
Going back to flirting – even with a stressful routine, your wife will love an unexpected invitation to a movie or romantic dinner, far away from the domestic problems. Setting a time for the couple is essential. It makes the routine lighter, sweeter, comforts the soul and is a great chance to strengthen the relationship.
